yeah that comment was a US perspective, maybe instead of "never warrant huge production" i should say "never warranted large US distribution". The US gets the RS' a bit later than over there if at all and definitely in fewer numbers. The RS5 or TTRS are the only newer ones I've seen in my area, not so much all sedans or avants. frown.gif

If it's a track car then I guess style wasn't exactly the ultimate goal. still looks ugly.

I saw a similar one the other day. There must have be a track series somewhere locally as it also had NY plates. On my way to work today I saw a Continental GT, Flying spur and a Drophead Coupe. I also saw a SLS yesterday, that car just looks better and better every time is see it.

^^^ Pretty obvious that it's a track car.
Actually looks decent, considering.

I am glad black and gunmetal are going by the wayside.
I wonder if Porsche is really going to go through on the wagon? Besides the show car stuff on it, the technology seems very current and feasible. The front clip shows like a Panamera facelift/2nd gen. Other makers in the past have shown random concept wagons at shows though, and then chickened out and just made a normal sedan from them instead. The previous generation A8 was shown as a wagon when it was a concept way back in like, 1999:

Yes but this wagon is ugly and unbalanced. The sedan version of that A8 is so good.

Not sure how I feel about chrome wheels. My favorite wheel finish:

Ugh, why don't they bring this S3 to the US?

i tuned my a3 3.2 s-line and it had about the same output and a not dissimilar experience to the hatch s3 (hp/torque not wildy different). there is talk of the s3 sedan making it's way here in 2014 but don't expect more than a 270 4 banger. in 2014 allegedly, the s4/s5 losing 2 cylinders and gaining more titanium.

I really hope they do not make the S5 a turboed I4.

And yeah, instead of the 3door A3/S3, they are bringing in an A3/S3 sedan. I just hope it looks better than the 1series sedan/coupe.

theyre switching the Q5 to the 3.0T so my guess is theyd use that if its being used in more models elsewhere
